Maya Salah, an associate in Ballard Spahr's Litigation Department, has been appointed to the Minnesota Commission on Judicial Selection. She will represent the Second Judicial District.

"I'm honored to serve on the Minnesota Commission on Judicial Selection, representing Ramsey County,” Ms. Salah said. "I look forward to working with colleagues across the state to fulfill this important duty."

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, and members of the Minnesota Supreme Court select the members of the 49-person commission, which evaluates applications for vacancies in district court judgeships. The commission recommends to the governor no fewer than three and no more than five nominees for each judicial vacancy.

Ms. Salah advises national and international clients on employment and business immigration matters, focusing her practice on employment-based immigration, I-9 audits, and corporate immigration compliance. She is a former prosecutor with the Hennepin County Attorney's Office and a former investigator for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

"We are delighted that Governor Walz has appointed Maya to the Minnesota Commission on Judicial Selection," said Minneapolis Office Managing Partner Karla Vehrs. "Ballard Spahr is committed to fostering civic engagement on the part of our attorneys and staff, and we are grateful for Maya's willingness to serve the state and the legal profession."
